Another zero-day, another zero-dollar.

I wonder if there’s a long German word for the feeling you experience when leaving your workplace through a snowstorm at 1:30 in the morning because your “enterprise-grade “antivirus software turned into the primary vector for a worm infestation, and you need to go on walkabout to every single computer in the organization to fix it manually despite the fact that you pay good money to your antivirus providers to prevent just this sort of thing from happening, and to be able to deal with it remotely when it does happen.

If not, there really should be. Get on that, Germans!

  1. I read your posting, and I believe that “Schadenfreude” is the word for how I felt.

  3. Doesn’t it help that your older and wiser now for dealing with such problems? Hope your birthday and weekend were good, the best wishes are approximate. Coming to Ottawa to ski and skate anytime soon?

  4. When crap like that happens, my friend Oliver always says “ich kann nicht so arbeiten.” It works in this case. :)
